connection Property

This property senses the best type of internet connection available

intel.xdk.device.connection

Description:

This property senses the best network connection type available and returns the result (either "wifi", "cell", or "none"). If the connection is still being negotiated by the device and the best network connection type is still being determined, this property will return the value "unknown". This property is updated only when the device.updateConnection() command is called and the intel.xdk.device.connection.update event is triggered.

Example:


document.addEventListener("intel.xdk.device.connection.update",function(){alert(intel.xdk.device.connection);},false);

intel.xdk.device.updateConnection();
